The basic goals for this RFP are to implement appropriate monitoring protocols to document baseline conditions within these restored urban streams, and then to compare these current/initial conditions over time to results from post-restoration/water quality improvement practice implementation and associated monitoring data sets. This work is being conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey.
The primary objectives of this RFP are:
- To establish at least two years of baseline rainfall, water flow, water quality, and biological stream monitoring data.
- To continue monitoring these metrics while a range of new projects to improve water quality are implemented throughout the watersheds (expected to be accomplished over a two-year period) through a series of future related RFPs.
- To further extend the post-implementation monitoring period for two additional years to quantify post-implementation benefits.
